A Quick Update
I've been doing some work on the site, and soon we will have ATOM feed of the site content as well as a newsletter that people can subscribe to for the news from around the Midwest. If I've done everything correctly then folks should be able to suscribe to daily, weekly, or monthly updates from the blog. So, you'll have the freedom to decide how "in the know you will be" (or how full your inbox will be). Also, by request I will be chaning some of the fonts around soon, so that the site is easier to read.
All this and more coming soon, so stay tuned.
